U. S. WILL MAKE INVESTIGATION OF RED RIVER CASE WASHINGTON, D. C.. Nov. 23.— Frank Xebeker, assistant attorney general in charge of the public land division, asserted today that the shuting of the Red River from the Oklahoma side to the Texas side since 1819, when the boundary line was established, complicates the case in such a way that it will be necessary to send several experts to the scene to make a complete investiga? (ion. “We have concluded from the information that we have at present the government would not be justified in starting suits against the private claimants upon the land in place on the Texas side of the present river.” Nebeker said, when seen today by a correspondent. "The department of justice will make investigations in the immediate future tor the purpose of clearing up some points of doubt that remain after giving full consideration to the investigation thus far made. It has been determined that the government will appear in the case pending in the United States supreme court, which was filed by the state of Oklahoma against Texas, and will make its claim broad enough to include any lands that are now on the Texas side of the present river that were on the Oklahoma aide in 1819 when the boundary line was established.” Nebeker said that the department of justice had further determined that suits will be brought in behalf of the Indian allottees along the Oklahoma meander line of 1375 to protect their righto ss to any of the claims asserted on Undo that would belong to tl}e Indians under those allotments. ’The Investigations upon which the final determination will be made aa to the lands on the Texas side of the present river will be completed about the middle of December.” Nebeker said.

Throughout the trial the military leader, famous among military men as the man who brought the French 75 mili-meter gun to perfection and made It admittedly the best piece of artillery ordance in the world, had presented a smiling countenance to his accusers. The trial was the most sensational ever held in Chihuahua City where Angeles and his two companions were brought after their capture near Parral by state volunteer troops Nov. 19.

Laughlin was present and extended the thanks of the board of commissioners tor the valuable assistance rendered by the Chamber of Commerce, its president and secretary.
